Ever since I found a gorgeous cast iron skillet at an estate sale months ago I have been OBSESSED with skillet cooking. I can’t stop making skillet meals for my family. It started with these amazing One Skillet Garlic Parmesan Zoodles, then this One Skillet Chicken Burrito Dip and it’s just gone down hill from there. One day I made every single meal (including dessert in my skillet). That was an unforgettable display of kitchen skill on my part. I was quite impressed with myself 🙂
Why do I love my cast iron pan so much? Let me break it down for you:
- Conducts heat like a boss- these workhorses heat evenly and maintain heat for a long time, making them ideal for searing meat to perfection.
- No chemicals – I’m not a fan of Teflon coated pans. Like at all. I’m terrified of the chemicals that are seeping off in my food whenever I use one. I prefer to keep my kitchen as chemical free as possible, so cast iron fits in perfectly.
- Versatile- this badass can go from stove top to oven without batting an eye, making it perfect for everything from sauteing veggies to cooking up some amazeballs cinnamon rolls.
Now that you know why you have to have a cast iron skillet in your kitchen, I’m going to give you yet another awesome recipe to make in it.
Hope you love it as much as we do! Enjoy!!
